Poll Shows That Michigan Citizens Support 60 MPG Fuel Efficiency Requirements By 2025
A new poll monitored by The Mellman Group for Ceres revealed a strong support for increasing the average fuel economy to 60 MPG by 2025. Feedback from the 800 potential Michigan voters who participated in the study, think that increasing the average fuel economy will not only create better vehicles but all add more jobs. 56% of those polled said that they believe that the added expenses that a higher fuel efficiency will require will be outweighed by the benefits. The findings come at an important time because government agencies will soon be debating new passenger vehicle fuel economy standards for the years 2017-2025. Proposed measures are slated to be released in September.

TVA, University of Tennessee to Develop Campus Energy Management Program

The Tennessee Valley Authority and the University of Tennessee, have agreed to develop 10-year strategic energy plan that will be focused on energy efficiency and energy management solutions. The initial phase is to develop targets for electricity demand reduction and annual energy savings with the hope being that, if successful, other universities could copy the plan if they chose to become more responsible about their energy use. The project’s has set a goal of completing the first phase of the plan by this Fall.

Details About Linde And Daimler’s Fuel-Cell Vehicle Infrastructure Developments

Car manufacturer Daimler and technology company The Linde Group have agreed to design and build 20 new hydrogen fueling stations in Germany over the next 3 years. Both companies see the hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle market as a hot opportunity and will ensure that hydrogen produced purely from clean energy resources will be available for the growing number of fuel-cell vehicles on Germany’s streets. The project is a piggy-back on the current H2 Mobility and Clean Energy Partnership infrastructure projects which currently receive financial incentives from the National Innovation Programme for hydrogen and fuel-cell technology (NIP).
